    Kenny,
    I'm afraid all I can find is the following...

    Design: George Larsen, USA 1964
    Builder: Janus Plastics Co. Inc.
    Ghost 13 National Association, USA
    LOA: 13'0"
    Beam: 5'0"
    Draft: 6" cb up
    Displacement: 160 lbs (presumably without crew...)
    Sail Area: 105 sq.ft (70 main, 35 jib)
    Spinnaker area: 140 sq.ft
    Price: $900 (from 1974)
    Other: 2 crew. Trapeze and hiking straps used. Sailed only in America at present (again 1974) Self-rescuing, foam flotation. Kits and plans not available. One of the most versatile family sailboats ever developed.

    Of course, you could always try Google, which came up with this link...

    HTH,

    Thanks for the info but I am sure it was manufactured by Colonial Marine which is not in business any more, John

    Well, apparently it was originally made by Janus (according to my book) but then Colonial took over.
    From the History Page of the Ghost13 site:
    "I know it was made in 1978, and manufactured by Colonia Marine Products Inc (all this info can be figured out by looking at the HID - Hull Identification Number - it's on your boat)"

    Steve - good luck with the search.

    If you go to the Owners page (http://ghost13.drastic-creations.com/owners.html) you should note the HIN variation. "CXP" is obviously colonial, while the earlier boats are "JPC" which one could assume to be Janus (dangerous, I know, this assuming...)
